Seaports are the source of uncontrollable pollution and contamination to run rampant in the surrounding areas. In this regard, the most common causes of seaside pollution are shown below:
- Flippant boat cleaning
- Thoughtless fueling operations
- Marine head discharge
- Storm-water runoff
With prolonged exposure to contaminants and pollutants, it doesn’t take long for the seaports to be overcome by pathogenic bacteria, detrimental algae, and worst of all, horrifying oil and gas spills. As a result, the local fauna begins to die off; the food chain is thrown off kilter; and the area’s ecosystem undergoes extreme duress. Therefore, it’s important for all of us to mitigate these harmful practices before the problem exacerbates to the point of no return.
